Music is an integral, enjoyable and rewarding part of the Orana Catholic Primary School community. We are proud to offer a vibrant and inclusive music program to our students where we strive for teamwork and excellence within our ensembles.

The students engage in a comprehensive classroom music program from Pre Primary to Year 6. Music skills taught include:

Singing, Playing, Listening, Reading and Writing, Responding, Creating and Improvising.

Instrumental Music Program and Concert Band Program

All students from Year 3 have the opportunity to learn a Brass (Trumpet, Trombone or Euphonium) Woodwind (Flute, Clarinet or Saxophone), String (Classical, Electric or Bass Guitar), or Percussion (Drum Kit and Tuned Percussion) instrument. Students can experience the excitement of performing in a group ensemble with the School Concert Band Programme on offer. Any student is eligible to join the School Band once they have met a minimum standard on their instrument.

Students are tutored by highly qualified Instrumental teachers who bring a wealth of experience and talent to Orana. Lessons are conducted throughout the week during school hours (before school or lunch time lessons may be available on request). Instrument hire is also available from the school for all Brass and Woodwind instruments.

School Choir

Orana offers students the opportunity to participate in the school choirs. We currently offer a Senior and Junior Choir to students in yr 2 - 6.
